Commonly used cast steel gate valves and 304 stainless steel gate valves are made of steel, and some customers think that stainless steel gate valves are more expensive than cast steel. Can they be universal if they have similar
performance. This is not possible. The two valves cannot be used universally, because the media they are applicable to are still different.
Stainless steel gate valve is more corrosion-resistant and durable! It can still easily hold media with high acid and alkali content, and can be applied to special media. Cast steel gate valves will not work. They are not resistant to acid and alkali. If they are in a medium with high acid and alkali content, they will rust after a while, and they will rust after a while. Cast steel gate valves are more suitable for common media, such as power plants.
Regarding the fact that stainless steel gate valves are more expensive than cast steel gate valves, it also requires specific analysis and cannot be summarized simply. For example, if you use high-density high-quality cast steel gate valves to compare with regular 304 stainless steel gate valves, the cast steel gate valves are more expensive. If it is a lower quality cast steel gate valve compared with a regular 304 stainless steel gate valve, then the stainless steel gate valve is expensive. So we still have to choose according to our own working conditions and make a good budget.
The types of stainless steel gate valves can be divided into wedge gate valves and parallel gate valves according to the sealing surface configuration. Wedge gate valves can be divided into: single gate, double gate and elastic gate; parallel gate gate valves It can be divided into single gate type and double gate type. Divided according to the thread position of the valve stem, it can be divided into two types: open stem gate valve and dark stem gate valve. This type of valve should generally be installed horizontally in the pipeline.
